Question

Which of the following is an example of the transitive property?

  1. If x = 5 and x = y, then y = 5.
  2. If x = y then y = x
  3. x = x
  4. If 2x + 4 = 2, then x = - 1

Hint:

For a transitive relation
a->b
b->c
then a ->c

The correct answer is: If x = 5 and x = y, then y = 5.


    From the given options
    x = 5 and x = y, then y = 5.
    that is y = x
    x = 5 , so
    so y = 5 follows
    So , it is transitive .
     

    whenever x = y and y = z, then also x = z.
